Norman Cohn Family Annual Holocaust Remembrance and Education Lecture

Mon, 04/15/2013 - 7:30pm - 9:15pm
Room 2, Sabin Hall
Howard Reich, arts/jazz critic for the Chicago Tribune and the child of Holocaust survivors, will show excerpts from and discuss his film, "Prisoner of Her Past," based on his book The First and Final Nightmare of Sonia Reich (recently republished as Prisoner of Her Past). The film documents his mother's late-onset PTSD resulting from her experiences during the Holocaust and Howard Reich's own journey to learn about his parents' stories of survival. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period and a book-signing and reception. Free and open to the public.
